Why has Internal Revenue Service issued more than $11 billion in improper payments. Are they incompetent?

The Internal Revenue Service issued more than $11 billion in improper payments through its Earned Income Tax Credit program last year, according to an inspector general’s report released this week.

Treasury Department deputy inspector general Michael McKenney found that the IRS has failed to comply for two consecutive years with the Improper Payments Elimination Act, which President Obama signed in 2010. The law requires federal agencies to reduce erroneous payments to a rate of less than 10 percent.

Isn't this the organization who is going to enforce Obamacare? They can't even get this right.

Update:

Greasy Tony - Did I directly say it was Obama's fault? You have a complex because I use a Avatar of Obama who said that he wanted to "Spread the Wealth". Since you open the can of worms here, is Obama using the IRS to "Spread the Wealth"?
